After our magical visit to Hogwarts, we needed some non-magical food to bring us back to earth. We headed back into town and straight for Soho, where a plethora of delicious-looking restaurants surround you. We made for Jackson & Rye, a place I’d been wanting to try for a while.
It was pretty busy, but we managed to snag a lovely table right at the back.
And I was thrilled to discover they were still serving brunch, my favourite meal.
It was a struggle. The menu is fabulous, with something for everyone and lots of sweet treats. I decided to go for my old favourite, Eggs Benedict. Only it was even better than usual, because instead of a muffin, the perfectly poached eggs sat on top of half an avocado each. Amazing.
Alex treated himself to a icy cold glass of beer.
And a Farmer’s Breakfast, which consisted of scrambled eggs, thick belly pork bacon, sausage meat and fried potatoes. It was fantastic, only let down slightly by the sourdough bread, which was ‘difficult to manoeuvre’ (#firstworldproblems).
Since I had a small(ish) brunch, I decided to treat myself to a dessert. I couldn’t say no to the melting chocolate sundae. It arrived covered in solid chocolate, which melted under the warm salted caramel sauce. Drooling yet?
Guess what happened to the leftover sauce?
Alex decided to have an alcohol themed dessert, and ordered the Dark & Stormy Float – rum and ginger beer topped with rum & raisin ice-cream. He loved it.
The food was delicious, the staff were wonderful and the place was lovely. It’s right bang in the middle of Soho, so the perfect place to start a night out (or finish one the next day!).
